Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I hesitate calling them bastards, but only because bastards did not have any choice in how  their existence came to be, and I don't wish to insult them. And kudos to Senator Al Franken (D-MN) for gathering a large majority of sane senators on the issue.

b) Florida fretting over loss of Ineffably Stupid Criminal title to Louisiana:

Police said a naked man who appeared to be drunk or on drugs broke into a home in Slidell, cooked and ate a meal and took a shower before leaving, wrapped only in a sheet. Slidell Police Capt. Kevin Foltz said a video surveillance system at the home shows that the naked man first used a garden hose to shower outside the house. He later broke several windows, entered the house and ransacked it before cooking himself a meal, having several drinks and showering again. It happened early Monday while the home's owner was away.

Note to shower man. YOUR PICTURE is plastered on the front page of the local paper. Oh, wait. This is Louisiana. Do people READ papers there?

This is the state which loves a US senator who wears diapers and has prostitutes spank him during sex. One can only imagine what they do to pelicans in private.

c) Nazism, Necrophilia, Pedophilia, Bestiality

Leave it to Texass to elect a GOP congresscritter who thinks that legislating against hate crimes will cause all of the above.

Louis Gohmert (Tx - R) is the Church of Ineffable Stupidity's moist Sacred s'AINT of the day.


If you have a few minutes to waste, watch the vid. Too much sun? Too many cattle? Lead poisoning from all those bullets shot during losing Alamo skirmish? First we have Tom DeLay embarrassing America on national Tee Vee. And now this.

d) Wells Fargo
Calling this corporate gaggle of goose-stepping, gangrenous, gum-chewing, gypsies Sons of Bitches would be insulting to rabid pregnant dogs.

First, they grab $25 BILLION in taxpayer gifted bailout funds. Do they use this money to fix the very cystern that they broke? Hardly. Instead, they buy Wachovia Bank for $12.7 BILLION. And now, they are looking at the criminally inclined Swiss bank UBS (which got its own taxpayer bailout of $60 BILLION) as yet another target for takeover.

So, how are they financing all these bank purchases? Wells Fargo just announced that they are raising credit card rates across the board by 3%. That means some of their rates will exceed 20%.

In unrelated news, Funk and Wagnall's announced that one word searched a surprising number of times in recent days was "usury"

usury |ˈyoō zh (ə)rē|
the illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest.
So nice of Wells Fargo to use our money so constructively, helping the little guy out. Tell me again why we bailed out these thieves? Why not simply buy out the mortgages and leave these banks to languish in latrines they dug and filled all on their own?

In unrelated news, Scientists in British Columbia have successfully decoded the genetic code of the second most common deadly breast cancer. This means that new and improved targeted cures and prevention are around the corner.

United Health's CEO has already excluded breast cancer as a pre-existing condition (after all, women had their breasts before the diagnosis) in order to support his HOURLY INCOME OF $58,000. Each hour. Every hour. Every day. Every week. Every month.

In more unrelated news, United Health was rated the worst health insurance company in America, with a higher rate of post-diagnoses policy cancellations and denials of claims, than even Blue Cross of California (the second worst company in America).
